Daily Mail Weekend Magazine Archers Update February 15-18

The children of Ambridge have much to contend with. Often begotten under curious circumstances, they’ve seen many a parent disappear into that misty world beyond the Am. A bit of a run-around in the local playground helps to keep them on an even keel - or what passes in Ambridge for an even keel.
Now, a shadow hangs over the swings; the roundabouts stand idle and the see saws are empty. Gangmaster Phil got his press-ganged team to repair the equipment, and shame-faced villagers scuttle past, eyes averted and dragging wailing toddlers behind them. Emma tries to mop away the guilt, but the task seems too much for her - until help comes from an unexpected source, bringing a gleam of hope to troubled Ambridgers.
